Institutional ORCID Membership
Membership of ORCID.org is now available to Canadian higher education institutions through the national ORCID-CA Consortium arrangement operated by the Canadian Research Knowledge Network. Concordia University has recently joined this consortium.
For research institutions supporting the work of their researchers, ORCID has the following benefits:
- Improves data quality for reporting research output for institutional management purposes. (As publishers increasingly adopt the use of ORCID, researchers at any stage of their career can link to as many publications and scholarly outputs as possible)
- Enhances an institution’s research profile through improved visibility and discoverability of research outputs and their research impacts
- Has a time and cost benefit as it reduces manual data entry, minimizes double handling of data and makes it easier to maintain up‐to‐date records
